Barbot on Guinea - Hakluyt Society

£14.99

Product description

Jean Barbot, who served as a commercial agent on French slave-trading voyages to West Africa in 1678-9 and 1681-2, in 1683 began an account of the Guinea coast, based partly on his voyage journals (only one of which is extant) and partly on previous printed sources. The manuscript was eventually published in 1732. Barbot's book had considerable influence on later European attitudes to Black Africa and the Atlantic slave trade and in modern writings on both subjects is frequently cited as evidence.

Volume I covers the coast of Africa from Senegal to Rio da Sueiro da Costa and has 327 pages. Volume II continues the description of Guinea from Rio da Volta to Cape lopo Gonzalvez. Page numbers continue to 916.

Hardback books in very good condition. Ends of spine bumped. With dustjackets in good condition. Edges worn and creased. Shelf worn and rubbed, with some loss of colour and discolouration of back covers. Patch of paper and text loss and chip to top front corner on back of jacket to vol II.
